BOSTON (AP) — The governor of Massachusetts is banning all traffic from roads after 4 p.m. today, when the worst of a powerful snowstorm is expected to be bearing down on New England.
It's believed to be the first traffic ban in the state since the blizzard of 1978.
Boston could get as much as three feet of snow, which would break the city's snowfall record of 27.6 inches.
A forecaster says the storm is the type that "doesn't come along every day." Alan Dunham of the National Weather Service says it will be a "dangerous winter storm."
